All The News That's Fit To Be Tied
Here's the lede from a current Associated Press story:
"WASHINGTON (Sept. 26) - President George W. Bush urged Americans to cut back on unnecessary travel to make up for fuel shortages caused by Hurricane Rita as he prepared to take his seventh trip to the Gulf Coast."
Then a few grafs later:
"The president returned Sunday from a three-day trip in which he stopped in four cities that have been a base for government response to the storm. As he has in most of his previous trips to the areas hit by the hurricanes, Bush spent most of the time in meetings with state and local officials - many of them reporting by videoconference."
Um, think the press seems a little pissed off at George Bush?
